Meeting standards in terms of conduct and competence.
Nearly 16,000 nurses and midwives will be the first to revalidate in April 2016. All 685,000 nurses and midwives on the NMC’s register will go through the new process as their registration becomes due for renewal over the course of the next three years.
This model of revalidation will increase the public’s assurance that the nurses and midwives on our register are capable of safe and effective practice…It will provide a means of checking that those nurses and midwives continue to meet our standards in terms of conduct and competence, and that they have continued to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.
Competence means all those in caring roles must have the ability to understand an individual”s health and social needs and the expertise, clinical and technical knowledge to deliver effective care and treatments based on research and evidence.
